COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed (with help from our great friend Jean of Tired Hands!) on the day of my grandmother’s passing (Norma), this is an inspired Biere de Mars fermented entirely in oak and inoculated with our house spontaneous culture.

Bready, fruity, a bit funky, tart, sort of like a melange of flemish brown, flemish red, and a hint of saison, extremely interesting beer bursting at the seams with flavors. Not always my favorite flavors, but a damn impressive beer nonetheless.

2012 bottle from a trade with cpetrone84, thanks Chris! Pours a nice golden amber, sparkling carbonation, spongy off-white head that breaks down into nice lacing. Very lively nose. A nice tartness is present among the floral/earthy aroma. Like fresh picked flowers. Some musty Brett wafts out, lending a bit of oak as well. Taste is moderately acidic with notes of green apple and pear. Mouthfeel is lively, giving it a champagne quality. Vinous notes across the barrel character. Very nice and balanced. Finishes fairly tart and dry. Excellent beer.

Booming brett aroma with oak. Copper gold brilliantly clear. Amazing brett flavor really dominates the body which is nice and full bodied. A wow beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
